Honey for SARS

I think that the general idea is good - that we need to build up the immune system. There's a couple of ways at least to win the fight against SARS:

1) attack the virus directly

2) boost the immune system

I've always been interested in high dose infusions of vitamins, although have never done this, nor seen it done. However, the research presented by Emanual Cheraskin, MD, DDS in his book Vitamin C - Who Needs It? is interesting.

There's a lot that we don't know. It's possible that the money associated with developing a new pharmaceutical has had the effect of decreasing interest in remedies (e.g. vitamins) that would not produce huge sales and profits.
